At CONNECT, we help people like Suyapa Gonzales achieve their goals. Suyapa Gonzales is a long-time client of The Neighborhood Developers. Initially connected to TND through her participation in our Financial Health workshops, Suyapa has also taken advantage of TND’s free tax preparation services and has seen her savings grow through the IDA matched savings program. Through her participation in TND’s programs she has been able to formalize and grow her small business, selling natural and herbal supplements.

Through CONNECT Suyapa will access new services being offered through the collaboration, including financial coaching, small business development, ESL courses and computer training. Deeply rooted in giving back and being a leader in the community, Suyapa plans to spread the word about CONNECT throughout Chelsea, and eventually hopes to provide Spanish classes to English speaking CONNECT clients.

Give to CONNECT to support clients like Suyapa as they seek to improve their lives. All donations will go into CONNECT General Operating Fund, covering our basic services from free English classes to job search assistance. All donations to CONNECT are tax deductible to the extent provided by the law through our 501(c)(3) operating partner, The Neighborhood Developers.
